Commons Sense | Improving my vodcasts?

Commons Sense | Improving my vodcasts? | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

For those that follow my blog over this past academic year I have been flipping my IB diploma Physics class. In a previous blog (I Launch myself onto You tube) I shared my initial vodcasts and the related reflection. So now a few months further down the line I am returning to further reflect on the vodcasts that I produce. With respect to my own class progression my first semester has been completed and the average class results are higher then in previous years as are those of the best students but this is a small and talented cohort some I don’t want to over analyse those facts. For now my flipped classroom journey goes on.

Students flipping over new teaching style

Not many courses in high school match the challenge that Advanced Placement Chemistry offers students. For teachers, finding enough time to teach the subject’s abundance of content is perhaps just as big of a challenge. Jill Christman, a chemistry teacher at Canyon Del Oro High School, has worked in collaboration with Salpointe High School’s Brenda Wolpa to find a solution to both of these issues. The solution is known as flipping.

Warning: Flipping Your Classroom May Lead to Increased Student Understanding | Teaching Science and Math

Warning: Flipping Your Classroom May Lead to Increased Student Understanding | Teaching Science and Math | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

Flipping a classroom is not a teaching technique, it is more in line with a philosophy or way of teaching. It involves using technology as a tool, not the main focus, for helping students increase their understanding of science or math concepts. Why use this strategy? Because in far too many cases the status quo is not working.

GIS Education Community Blog : Flipping It: An Instructional Alternative for GIS in the Class

GIS Education Community Blog : Flipping It: An Instructional Alternative for GIS in the Class | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it
A few years ago a couple of Colorado chemistry teachers realized that they were spending incredible amounts of time preparing make-up work and documenting the day’s instruction for students who were out sick. To help curb this time problem, they began recording their instruction and placing instructional video (e.g. narrated PowerPoint), class exercises, interactive simulations and other materials online every day – as a regular component of their instructional preparations. What they found was that not only did the resources help the absent student but also students who attended class leveraged the online materials as an opportunity to review. With the advent of a variety of web GIS tools (like ArcGIS Online) and an explosion of existing instructional video on basic GIS activities (YouTube or ArcGIS videos), the flipped classroom may be a great approach.

BLC11 Keynote: Dr. Eric Mazur | November Learning

BLC11 Keynote: Dr. Eric Mazur | November Learning | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

Opening keynote from BLC11 with Dr. Eric Mazur. Dr. Mazur is the Area Dean of Applied Physics and Balkanski Professor of Physics and Applied Physics at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. In his keynote, Dr. Mazur shares his vast research on teaching and learning. Students in Dr. Mazur’s class are moving far away from the traditional stand and deliver lectures given in many k-12 and university classrooms around the world, and they are gaining a much deeper understanding of the material being taught in the process.
